MMR shot

For those LOs who have had their 1st year appointments and got the MMR shot how did they react?

I'm thinking of rescheduling her appointment since her party is this weekend.

Re: MMR shot

  • My older two never had a problem with it, and I feel like Lucas has had mmr already. Are you doing delayed vaccinating??

    Edit never mind, Lucas hasn't! The other two have with no issues maybe sleepy that day that's all.

    mmr is given at a year. We have not gone yet but all his other shots have made him so sleepy. I would personally do it after the party but I am sure before would be fine if your LO didn't react to others.
    I did hear that that shot sometimes gives kids rashes after? No idea though!

    She gets it at her 1 year appointment. I just heard this one has a higher rate of fever and rashes.

  • We scheduled my LO's 1 year appt for Monday instead of on her birthday Friday for this very reason.

    My DD got it and had no issues, except a fever that day.  My DS just got it today--he has just been sleepy.
  • He got it yesterday. Yesterday he was a little clingy and more tired than normal. Today he is fine. The rash is only in about 2% and can take up to 4 weeks to show up.

    My daughter had it last week and didn't really have a reaction.  She was probably a little fussy that day, and we did give her tylenol in the afternoon, but nothing after that.  They did tell us that about a week after the shot she might get a fever or be fussy.

    A note on what PPs have mentioned. I've been researching this one. The MMR contains whole virus, though inactive. That's why it's got a higher occurence of rash and fever. Most vaccines are only a piece of the virus.

  • LO had 3 shots yesterday including MMR. He was really sleep last night (fell asleep in the car on the way home from daycare, didn't wake when taken out, continued to nap for another hour until we woke him up for dinner). Other than that, no real reaction yet.
  • Lol shows how much I know my office waits until 15 months to do mmr! I guess I was thinking of Nathan
